Dear Russell Cumbee: The verdict is fingers down, thumbs up for your buddy Gregory Floyd.

Dear Russell Cumbee, you vapid tool: I figured a pictorial essay was in order. No need to get profane on me there, Michelle flipping me the downward dog.... er, bird, after all, it was a thumbs up day for (a modicum of) Justice. Again, Floyd's crazed rantings were the last thing that Liko Kenney heard before he was murdered, IMO.

More pics coming soon. You know, pictures that the major media won't show you, like the windshield bullet that, as I noted yesterday in the go directly to jail post, proves that:

a) Gregory W. Floyd lied about how he shot at Liko Kenney or

b) Bruce McKay fired his weapon and as such clothing should have been saved and analysed that would have shown Liko Kenney was not shot close range as Floyd claims, after Liko allegedly refused to drop the gun. Note from the This American Life Epiphany Post #2 that Floyd only said that late in his interview, his first two statements were that "I didn't say a word," and "I shot the driver within 4 seconds."

Remember that Caleb Macaulay, with whom I spoke yesterday, clearly said in his interview that Floyd "had that gun trained on us before we even got on the road."

c) Kelly Ayotte is a lying, deceitful Attorney General, a fact that will be driven home at her confirmation hearing on 25 March.

It's gonna be interesting for Floyd in prison 'cos, like the inmates won't dig him because

a) they know Floyd threatened a helpless middle-aged woman,

b) they know Bruce McKay was a rogue cop and that Floyd shot a kid who was scared shitless of him.

And then the guards won't dig him because he threatens cops, says he's gonna' give them third eyes.

As I said, Justice in modicum.

PS: Had a chat with Sam Stephenson, you know, one of the guys who helped pull Liko Kenney's car off of Bruce McKay. More on that, and some mysterious clothing found off of 112, potentially relative to Maura Murray's appearance in the next post. Troop F was made aware.

BTW Lorna Colquhoun might as well be a paid shill by NH AG Kelly Ayotte; her ridiculous and unsubstantiated assertions about Gregory Floyd's actions on 5/11 as seen in this story.

After an apology, another violent outburst
New Hampshire Union Leader Correspondent
Friday, Mar. 6, 2009

Haverhill – The man who once threatened the lives of two state troopers and years later went to the aid of a fallen police officer was sentenced yesterday to a state prison term first imposed more than a decade ago.

Gregory Floyd, 51, of Easton erupted in his second courthouse outburst in less than a year as yesterday's sentence was read, arguing with the judge, directing his middle finger at him and wailing as court officers hustled him out of the courtroom.

"You'll be in court pretty soon," Floyd said to Grafton County Superior Court Judge Peter Bornstein. "You exceeded your authority. The federal law is the law, not you. You're exceeding your authority, your honor."

On the night of May 11, 2007, Floyd, a former Marine, witnessed Liko Kenney, 24, shoot Franconia police Cpl. Bruce McKay during a roadside stop, then drive over McKay in his Toyota Celica. Floyd, who had simply been a passer-by on Route 116, immediately shielded McKay with his truck and picked up McKay's gun. Floyd shot Kenney after Kenney refused Floyd's order to drop his weapon. Authorities said Floyd's actions were a justified use of deadly force.

Yesterday, Floyd was in Grafton County Superior Court for a hearing on whether a sentence should be imposed for his attempted assault on a police officer in 1998.

That one- to three-year sentence was suspended for 10 years on the condition that Floyd remain on good behavior. Prosecutors sought to impose that sentence last year after Floyd was convicted on a charge of criminal threatening against his neighbor, Alma Jean Boisvert.

Moments after that conviction in Littleton District Court last April, Floyd shouted, swore and waved his cane outside the courtroom, where officers restrained him and charged him in connection with the outburst.

Video of that outburst was played at the hearing yesterday as prosecutors argued that it, as well as the criminal threatening conviction, violated the condition of good behavior on that 1998 charge. That year, Floyd had several run-ins with police and at one point told state troopers he could have given them "a third eye" as they walked up to his Easton home. He was ultimately convicted of attempted assault on a police officer.

Yesterday, Floyd had watched that video impassively, arms crossed and occasionally leaning over to talk with his attorney, Curtis Payne.

►Jailed since April, Floyd freed (1)
►Floyd facing a struggle to avoid state prison (2)
►No plans to review shooting decision (5)
►Officer testifies Floyd's a danger (21)

While prosecutors sought to have the one- to three-year sentence imposed, Payne argued that Floyd has significant medical conditions and asked for a 12-month suspended sentence at the Grafton County House of Correction.

"Mr. Floyd is receptive to anger management counseling and a psychological evaluation," Payne said. "He's not crazy. He can be of good behavior; he was for a very long time."

The 10-years' good behavior would have run out in June 2008, a little more than two months after Floyd's conviction and outburst.

Prior to being sentenced, Floyd read from a prepared statement, prefacing it by saying, "Besides not hearing so many lies since the last time I was at a bar ... I apologize for my actions. My behavior was inexcusable ... I take full responsibility."

Payne said Floyd suffered a heart attack and was diagnosed with diabetes before his conviction last year, which may have been a factor in the outburst.

"He's not hiding behind that, but it certainly could have contributed to it," he said.

As Bornstein began to sentence Floyd yesterday, five court security officers stood behind Floyd, who was raising his voice over Bornstein's.

Floyd, who walks with a cane, was hustled by the officers toward a courtroom door, yelling "You f---- don't know anything," and other obscenities.

Sounds of a scuffle and Floyd wailing could be heard outside the door leading from the courtroom. He was taken to prison later in the afternoon to begin serving his sentence.

It is not the end of Floyd's court appearances. He has appealed the criminal threatening conviction and had been scheduled for trial next week in superior court. That trial was postponed until next month.

Still pending are the three charges stemming from the courthouse outburst last year, which are also scheduled to be heard next month.



Mr Floyd was never a hero. From what I understand he was not to posess a firearm. By picking up the officers gun to shoot Mr. Kenny, Mr Floyd was at that point in possession of a firearm. Mr Kenny was no where near right for shooting Officer McKay, but Officer McKay contributed to what took place so long ago by being way to aggressive for what was originally just a minor traffic stop. Had Mr Kenny robbed a bank than the force Officer McKay used may have been justified. But not for a simple traffic stop. Mr Floyd is no hero....Just someone in need of a lot of mental help.

There is no law against being a fat slob and a bully......until it can be proven to be criminal threatening which is the case here. The day Floyd rolled up on the Kenney/McKay situation was the day Floyd's prayers to the powers that be were answered. It was his opportunity to be a praised vigilante and he seized it. I'm not pretending to sugarcoat the "Liko" factor. I wish it had played out differently for everyone involved. There is a lot of unresolved issues with that and with Floyd in general. The sentence will not be fulfilled and he will be out on parole in 120 days at best....reserve your judgement once he actually completes his special conditions. Not something I'm willing to place a wager on, but that is the DOC's gamble.

Bruce from New London you are 100% right. Mr. FLoyd was a hero on that day no doubt....it is too bad that prior to that horrible day and since then he has gone/been right off the deep end.
- T. Bailey, Twin Mountain

Mr Floyd has serious mentasl issues and he needs serious mental help. NOT 1-3 years in PRISON. If he did not shoot Liko last yr just think of how many more police,innocent bystanders lives Mr Floyd may have saved. If Liko would of gotten away after killing policeman McKay.THINK ABOUT IT. if Mr Floyd was not on the scene that day what would of happened when the 6-15 surrounding policeman found him and blocked him in with their cruisers. I personaslly think Mr Floyd saved more lives that day and is getting railroaded over an ANGER problem he seriously needs to address....This man needs MENTAL HELP. NOT PRISON

Floyd was the right guy at the right time at the McKay incident. I described him and his son here as heroes, and they were. But it looks like the guy has now really lost it in terms of the rest of his life. So sad.
- Bruce, New London

Please...the guy violated his parole agreement. He's scary and truly frightening.

Nice crystal ball you have as to what Liko Kenney would have done had Floyd not killed him.
- Karen, Franconia

Floyd's criminal history is a frightening one. The DA followed the law; Mr.Floyd took his 'good behavior' release from '98 and went on terrorizing police officers and citizens with hostility and virtual impunity, including direct serious threats to officers and others on several occasions. The law was followed responsibly in my opinion. He should have thanked the Judge actually, all things considered. In my view, the man is in serious need of restraint or he will surely continue to be, as consistently proved over many years, a real menace to the public and police, in a variety of States. Good job to the Judge and DA in IGNORING the local politics re: the Kenney/Mckay tragedies, and putting this fellow where he can't terrorize others. This is a kind of terrorist comciousness with G. Floyd I think; I have lived waay up in the North Country for most of my life; a peaceful wonderful wildly beautiful place with the sweetest people anywhere, regardless of politics or opinions on local affairs. I feel this is some bit of justice today. Thank you for letting an out-of-stater have a say.

Cute how people love to chant the words freedom and liberty, yet can't wait to lock others up for their speech or personal behavior. If no actual physical crime or loss of property has been suffered by the so-called victim, I say let her have a civil suit for recourse and nothing more.

Guess thats the new America for you. Land of the "free" right?
- Nick, Keene

It is nice to see this guy get what he had coming. His behavior is way over the top. He tried to play the court, when that didn't work he threw a fit. Again! Anger management is the least of his problems. Why wasn't he charged as a felon in possession of a weapon when he shot that man up north?
- Peter M, Francestown

this guy is a total loon..
- cb, nh

I have to agree with Arthur here. Why are they sentencing this guy to 1-3 based on the word of another civilian? This seems strange. Does anyone know anymore about this case?
- Sam Hajj, Salem

You people are crazy! 3 years for being mouthy, due to obvious mental health issues, after you've stepped in like a hero and killed a cop murderer while he was reloading his smoking gun? This is insane.

I do not like, but I completely sympathize with Floyd, he's being railroaded and for what? Arguing with a neighbor then mouthing off at cops? Ridiculous. he should have let Liko Kenney roll into town, take hostages, kill them and himself, and maybe a couple troopers. This state is unreal.

Just goes to show, if you get feisty with a man in blue they'll go to any length to see you hang. The guy should have gotten a medal from the Governor for stopping a gun wielding man who just killed a cop. Yes he has mental health issues, that is clear.

One month later and his 3 year probation would have been up and this would have to be a slap on the wrist. You people are pitiful weak butt kissers! Believe me the real dangerous people are nice and quiet and polite.
- Arthur Merritt, Stratham

Wayne, you took the words right out of my mouth. This guy is full of hot air, he isn't sorry for anything he has done...
- J.J., Manchester

Wow, SCARY! This guy needs some serious meds and intesive anger management classes. Let the judge that eventually lets him out give him a place in his neighborhood to live.
- SID, Plano, TX

“My behavior was inexcusable,” he said. “I take full responsibility. I’m ashamed I lost composure.”

Isn't it amazing how taking full responsibility for one's actions has now morphed into taking full responsibility as long as you agree with the consequences? Taking responsibility means taking the consequences. If you are not willing to take the consequences, you are not willing to take full responsibility.
- Wayne, Manchester

Boy does he ever need anger management. He did do a heroic act regarding Officer McKay but he is adangerous person. If it wasn't for his outrageous behavior, he would never have had his past problems.

When he does get out, I'll bet you may not have heard the last of him.....
- Dave, Manchester

Stay Classy, Floyd!

What I posted to the UL story in the comments, that they will likely never print because they have a history of sensoring things they don't like.

A truly pathetic "news"paper, and I should know, having been an editor of a statewide Ohio paper (Columbus Call-Post) and a daily reporter at the Indianapolis Star.

I've done Lorna's job years ago, but now at least I get the chance to tell the Truth, based on the ACTUAL DOCUMENTS I read in the investigative file.

Lorna: You should follow suit because the Truth will set you free, Sister.

You think those anger management issues just might have been at play when he started firing the windshield bullet (Google Chris King's Blog/KingCast about Casey Sherman's forthcoming book "Bad Blood: Freedom and Death in the White Mountains" -- the cover design is AWESOME) at Liko Kenney on 5/11 before Liko's car ever even struck Bruce McKay? And before he MURDERED Liko Kenney IMO. Yep, that's why NH AG Kelly Ayotte closed the book in 24 hours.

Liko Kenney was not shot close range as Floyd claims, after Liko allegedly refused to drop the gun. Note from the This American Life Epiphany Post #2 that Floyd only said that late in his interview, his first two statements were that "I didn't say a word," and "I shot the driver within 4 seconds."
